Rock ‘N’ Roll Is Alive! (And It Lives In Minneapolis) is a Prince (as ) video for a song that was only released as the b- side to Gold.

It was recorded at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, Minnesota on 10 October 1995, together with footage for a video for Gold for use in the Love 4 One Another TV-special. The video features various "celebrity" attendees of Prince’s concert, including people in politician masks (Bill Clinton, Hilarry Rodham-Clinton, and Richard Nixon among them) and an Elvis look-alike (who ends up face down and naked on the bathroom floor to tie in with the song’s lyrics).

Until its release as a stream in the Prince YouTube channel it was not officially available as a stand alone video outside of the Love 4 One Another TV-special. Like for the Gold video, two edits were made (the stand alone version uploaded on the Prince YouTube channel omitting some of the shots of the character Nikki).
